Broos Names Provisional Bafana Bafana Squad
Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has named a 34-man provisional squad for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia in October.
The Belgian started his reign with a goalless draw against Zimbabwe and a 1-0 victory over Ghana that saw South Africa climb to the top of their qualifying group.
However, they now face Ethiopia in a tricky double header to cement that status and keep their hopes of qualifying for the Qatar World Cup alive.
Broos again opted to select an initial squad, which will still be cut down ahead of the games. He had indicated that a few players would be dropped from his squad after not convincing and opted not to call up Chiefs duo Austin Dube and Sibusiso Mabiliso. In addition, Gift Links and Sipho Mbule were also not included, but the latter is believed to be injured.
Percy Tau, though, has been included despite his latest injury that has sidelined him for the last two weeks.
